The American Scene Release First Single From ‘Haze’

the american scene 2014

A few days ago The American Scene announced their new album, Haze, due out September 9 via Pure Noise Records. Today we have been treated with the first single from the record, in the form of a music video for the killer track “Royal Blue.”

“Royal Blue” expands on the band’s abilities with a heightened groove, and even tighter musicianship. Try not to dance around during the chorus. Go ahead, I dare you. The video shows the band playing in black and white, accompanied by cityscapes.

Speaking to Alternative Press on the record, guitarist Jeff Wright had this to say,

This record came together very naturally. Going into it, we were much more conscious of the sound we wanted and what we wanted to portray with the songs. A great deal has changed about our lives since Safe For Now and we think Haze clearly reflects that in a concise and brilliantly framed light. We’ve grown with this record, just as we had with the last and we’re very excited to see what it is that we can accomplish next.

Pre-orders for Haze are now live here, and both of the Haze vinyl variants are gorgeous. If you are new to the band and enjoy “Royal Blue,” don’t sleep on Bundle 6, which comes with Haze as well as their fantastic sophomore release Safe For Now, both on vinyl, only for 25 bucks. All Haze pre-orders come with an instant download of “Royal Blue.”

Is it September yet?
